Healthy Curry Shoestring Fries

Read about curry version fries that have spicy powder sprinkled on them. Happen to have a pack of fries in the freezer and decided to play with it. Mixing the curry powder and oil with the fries, instead of deep-frying which can make my kitchen real oily, I threw them into the oven toaster. These make cooking fries so much simpler and yet with a new twist. What dipping sauce to go with this, anything you desired. If you like spicy food, add some curry powder to the salad cream or mayo.

Preparation: 3 mins Cooking time: 15 mins

Ingredients (serves 1)
 100g fries
 ½ teaspoon curry powder
 1 teaspoon oil
 salt to taste
 Few basil leaves or curry leaves (optional), deep-fried

Method
1. Combine the fries and curry powder in a bowl and mix well.
2. Drizzle the oil over the fries and mix well.
3. Place the fries in the over toaster and toast for 15 minutes or till crispy.
4. Sprinkle some salt, garnish with fried basil leaves and serve immediately.

Hi Anonymous

I used Shoestring fries in the name, because I feel it sound cute :p

Shoestring is just one variant, there are flat-cut, curly, crinkle etc.

Maybe, you can find the answer here:
